Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire has only 10 days left to go on IndieGoGo. If you’re looking to support the project, now would be the time.

From the campaign:

The Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire campaign on Indiegogo has entered “the last mile”, being down to the final 10 days of its campaign.

Producer Mark Sheppard said “This is where the action is. If you’ve decided to support us, but you’ve been holding fire until the last stretch, NOW is the time to show your support for Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire by buying a perk.” He cheekily adds “I can recommend the $25 Beta perk, which entitles you to early access to the game (without any kind of pressure to actually help us with testing—you can pretty much just enjoy the game and play other Beta participants before the mainstream gamers get online).”

If you’ve been umming and ahhing about backing the campaign, but leaning toward buying a perk, Mark recommends the $10 perk that gets you the game at a low price. “You probably spilled more than $10 worth of coffee last week. Please back us!” he exhorts.

If you have friends who are undecided on whether to back this campaign, or who are just as-yet unaware of it, Mark says “NOW is the time to apply MASSIVE AMOUNTS of peer-group pressure and guilt them into contributing to our campaign so that we all get to play EW:FE much, much sooner!”

Mark reminds us that, whether or not our campaign succeeds in netting the funding required to enable us to focus full-time on developing the core game, Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire is guaranteed to ship—eventually. How soon “eventually” is, though…that’s in the crowd’s hands now.

“We’ll of course continue to lobby this great wargaming community right up until the end of our campaign,” Mark added, “but be assured (or possibly annoyed) that we will continue to update you all on EW:FE’s progress after the campaign, when it hits Alpha and Beta, when it gets previewed by journalists, when we start offering the game for Pre-Orders, after the game ships, and well after you’re all completely sick of hearing about anything to do with Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire…so we’re respectively both very glad we can do that for you but also somewhat apologetic (sorry, but we just can’t help ourselves—the game is TOO AWESOME!).”

To those who have backed their campaign already, Membraine offers their sincere and heartfelt gratitude. To everyone else, they say they still love you—just not quite as much as those who have already backed them.

“But please GO NOW to our campaign page and buy a perk so that can be rectified.”

Membraine’s campaign to crowd-fund Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire ends at 11:59pm PT on Friday July 20th.

    I decided to support this a while back since the game looked like a good fit for an old school gamer where turn based play is a major selling point. I’ve gotten to where I hate the click fest that most RTS games have become and prefer soemthing more like the table top miniature game experience where you actually have time to consider you options and plan a little. I also figured that at the $10 level there was very little to lose and maybe a lot to gain, especially since that is about what I have to pay for luch everyday working in a major city.

    If you have not taken a look at the game, maybe it’s worth a few moments of your time. Also, not that the example videos only show a VERY small battlefield in a tourney like setting and not what a larger battlefield will be like where there will be a lot more room for fire and manuver tactics and strategy. The development team seem to be doing this as a labor of love and from that stand point along I think they will do their best to deliver a great product in the end.
